Hi I'm Mike


About Me

I am a recent convert of 4 years. I was born in Durango Mexico, but i grew up in south phoenix. Never had too much light nor direction or purpose in my life. All i've ever had is my family but even then, we weren't always united. I struggled much since my young days but somehow i overcame those problems. I am very strong minded and very well motivated to be all i can be. I love to express myself in diverse ways but mainly through my music. I just feel like music can really heal the wounded soul, it has a power behind it that cannot be measured so i use it to tell my story and touch the lives of others who might feel like i did at one point...,lost and hopeless. When the missionaries came into my life i was not interested at all! I always knew God was there but never gave Him the time to speak to me nor the attention to direct me. I found myself in some of the darkest places at times. The missionaries brought into my home the light of the gospel and the spirit of God, which was honestly missing in my life. Little by little, those feelings of peace, comfort and love grew on me. I finally converted and since then i have been feasting on all the spiritual knowledge i can get. Knowledge of where i came from, why i'm here and where i'm headed really helped me find the common ground between Heavenly Father and i. It has changed my life completely, now i'm happy, and full. I am very well grounded and know what i have to do, i have purpose.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS because i love the structure of the church. It is the same organization that the savior established when he was here on the earth, why wouldn't I want to be part of that? I am also part of this church because i have read the Book of Mormon and have received a witness from God that it is true, therefore i know that Joseph smith was a true prophet of God as well and that this church is the Lords kingdom againg established on the earth. I love the principles taught here, and love the fact that we have a living prophet who guides us and has direct communication with Father in heaven. I love that families can become eternal through proper priesthood authority and more importantly that i never stop learning. The gospel is infinite!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the teachings of Jesuschrist, and living prophets. I attend church meetings, i apply what i learn and do my best to be a living witness of Christ. I also study the scriptures dilligently and seek inspiration from on high. I love helping others and currently help the most by teaching the gospel as a full time missionary in anaheim california. The most important thing i do to live my faith is, apply the atoning sacrifice of the Savior in my daily life. Without it i would be lost. He is the perfect example and the only way to become like him and to come to know him is through applying that sacrifice and remembering it daily.
